There is a large meadow (and former music venue) near my home that is being paved over to make room for a shopping center. Acres and acres are being scraped clean of the natural vegetation. I was delighted today to see this tree being moved. It is a huge live oak that is most likely a hundred years or more old. The band of fabric around the bottom is about five feet high.
I have no idea where the tree's journey will end but I hope it thrives there. There were two smaller trees next to it that are probably part of its hammock. I hope the movers come back for them.
